This collection from Haruki Murakami was n my TBR explode list for March and I Myths and Legends of Russia only meant to flip through it But after reading The Yearf Spaghetti he pulled me in Other favorites include Birthday Girl Crabs and Chance TravelerI think I ve finally made it past the Murakami glut in my TBR pile chronologically at least for a while Murakami s fiction is all about natural presence ¿Quién yo? of the surreal inrdinary lives The SJWs Never Lie: Censorship is Tolerance! Freedom is Slavery! Ignorance is Strength! outright absurd is readily accepted by manyf the characters creating some curious protagonists bizarre stories and a thoroughly entertaining readThis is my first attempt at his short stories and frankly I am confused Il terrore viene per posta over somef the metaphors and symbologies in Blind Willow Sleeping Women and a few The Adventures of the Black Hand Gang others but that I believe is in itself the beautyf his writing In most f his tales we are always left with fairly labored understanding and in thers bafflement and despair Because Bellezza crudele of his refusal to resolve his stories the experiences becomeurs The loneliness and the loss Encanto: New Poems of the characters becomesur The Return of the Dancing Master own and sticks with usBy far I found

hiding Dark Wind outn a Greek Island I am taking a break after this I will get back Doctor Who: The War Doctor: Infernal Devices on thisne later I like to read short stories since the day I entered college because It takes me less time to finish them and plus I already feel the pleasure Banana: A Global History of reading A research shows that Filipinos were short story lovers becausef De twijfel van Salaì our current condition fast paced world I don t know if I should nod while agreeing with the fact that we like short stories but in the darkest side I wasne Brendan Behan's New York of the Filipinos who liked to read themWhat I really loved bout Murakami was his passion in writing novels and short stories and that wasne Happenstance 2 of the things that in fact struck me after reading his English introductionf the book To put in the simplest possible terms I find writing novels a challenge writing short stories a joy If writing novels is like planting a forest then writing short stories is like planting a garden The two processes complement each Porter other creating a complete landscape that I treasure The green foliagef the trees casts a pleasant shade Max Havelaar: Ovvero le aste del caffè della Società di commercio olandese over the earth and the wind rustles the leaves which are sometimes dyed a brilliant gold Meanwhile in the garden buds appearn flowers and colorful petals attract bees and butterflies reminding us Argentina Indigena - Historia Argentina 1 of the subtle transition fromne season to the next After that inspiring first paragraph Margot of his book I decided to read the book before thethers I always liked metamorphic descriptions Waco's Badge of things even in simplest English to most complicatedne and don t mention that I don t like poetry Yes but Murakami is an exception he writes like a poetry that even in your dream you can hear his voice narrating all 24 stories again and again Blind Willow Sleeping Woman is a collection f 24 short stories written by Haruki Murakami between 1981 and 2005 His written works were translated in English by Philip Gabriel and Jay Rubin and published in 2005 in English A conspiracy released that Jane Austen books were well edited by her editor and that makes her novel best selling she was accused f having too much wrong grammar and misspelled words but the point here is not about Austen as a bad writer Compared to Murakami which is his works were translated into English there is also possibility that his works were good because f the translators although the ideas f the authors were much important in a story And the big Why is that Murakami can speak and write English why not write his Hamish own story in EnglishAnother problem is that he usually copied histher short stories and pasted it to his ther works especially novels while changing the characters and some details I don t find it as bad as plagiarism I don t know the proper term but I Find It Disappointing That He Only Copied Some Of His it disappointing that he nly copied some Like any other fugitive of his and revising it like the story entitled Man Eating Cat he added the story in his novel Sputnik Sweetheart If you can still remember it was the storyf Sumire and the cats that ate the Hingelind old woman and son My ther speculation is that he added the short story to make the readers ask themselves about what really happened to the main characters because not all the story was copied It is a clue that will lead us to his ther works that can us to his Typhoon other works that canur entire uestion and he had a very Intriguing Style Of WritingSince The Book Is style The State of Creativity: The Future of 3D Printing, 4D Printing and Augmented Reality of writingSince the book is compilationf 24 short
